Pre-requisites

  1. Students wishing to register for a course requiring a state or local pre-requisite, will produce official documentation containing the pre-requisite credit, by means of an official transcript, placement test scores or other approved documentation, to the Office of Enrollment Management. The Office of Enrollment Management will record the receipt of the documentation and will forward any transcripts to the Registrar. Any valid credits from official transcripts will also be added to the student's academic record with SCC. Students who cannot produce official documentation, including official transcripts and/or placement test scores, will not be allowed to register for the course in question.
  2. Students wishing to register for a course requiring a state or local pre-requisite, who have not completed the requirements, should contact his/her advisor or the Associate Dean in the area in which the student wishes to enroll. At that time, the student will present his/her situation and the Associate Dean will determine whether qualifications have been otherwise met and the pre-requisite can be waived. If a waiver of the pre-requisite can be made, the Associate Dean will register the student and submit an "Override of Pre/Co-Requisite Form" to the Office of Enrollment Management within 24 hours.
  3. Students wishing to register for a course requiring a state or local pre-requisite, who haven't completed the requirements and have no valid waiver reason, must successfully complete the pre-requisite before attempting further registrations for the course in question.
  4. Any registrations for courses without the submission of an "Override of Pre/Co-Requisite Form" are subject to deletion by the Office of Enrollment Management to prevent possible audit exceptions.
  5. All "Override of Pre/Co-Requisite Forms" will be collected by semester and retained in the Office of Enrollment Management until the semester in question has been audited.
  6. Official documentation, with regard to transcripts, is defined as an official, sealed transcript delivered to SCC's Office of Enrollment Management. Transcripts can be received through US mail or hand delivered, as long as they are sealed in the envelope from the institution. Placement test scores from other colleges can be faxed to SCC's Office of Enrollment Management, if it is evident that the school faxed the information, or mailed in a sealed envelope from the college. SAT scores and AP credits from the College Board should be requested from The College Board and received in the Office of Enrollment Management in a sealed envelope.
  7. For certain continuing education courses, regulations may exist stipulating that courses not be taken until all prerequisites have been satisfied. These requirements are available from the program coordinator and will be included in the course descriptions. Any student who wishes to appeal the prerequisite requirement may do so by contacting the program coordinator whose decision will be final.

 

 

Co-requisites

  1. Students wishing to register for a course requiring a state or local co-requisite, should be registered for both courses simultaneously or have previously completed the co-requisite.
  2. There are no mandatory requirements for those courses that have optional or recommended co-requisites.

3.   For certain continuing education courses, regulations may exist stipulating that the course may only be taken in conjunction with another course or that other course (s) must have been previously successfully completed. These requirements are available from the program coordinator and will be included in the course description and course outlines. Any student who wishes to appeal the co-requisite requirement may do so by contacting the program coordinator whose decision will be final.
